Prospect Summary

Kyle Soelle NFL Draft Scouting Report

LB, Arizona State Sun Devils

Kyle Soelle is a fifth-year senior linebacker. Throughout Soelle’s, career he has been a productive linebacker, totaling more than 200 tackles in his career. Soelle’s 2022 season was his most productive season, tallying 110 tackles and two interceptions. Soelle’s tackling  production as a linebacker is a direct correlation to his instincts as a linebacker. At 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, Soelle’s size/length and instincts as a linebacker helps him play at a high level in both the run game and against the pass—showcasing his range as a player. 

In the run game, Soelle is a downhill player who does a plus-level job of quickly diagnosing the run and working downhill. Soelle has smooth movements as a player and plays with ideal pad height, which allows him to always be in position to make an effective tackle. Soelle is able to flow sideline to sideline and when he gets the proper jump on a play, he can prevent a ball carrier from turning upfield on outside run plays. Soelle is an inside-to-outside run defender that is reliable filling his gaps and enforcing the gap integrity of a defense. 

Against the pass, Soelle’s value is as a zone defender. Soelle does a good job of flipping his hips and getting depth to drop into his zone. Soelle shows well in reading the quarterback’s eyes to bring him to the receiver and become a disruptive pass defender. Soelle also appears to play with good body control in space and can break down on ball carriers in space and make the tackle. 

Soelle’s biggest deficiency as a player appears to be his athletic profile. While Soelle has shown to be a productive player, he may be a mismatch with some receivers on the next level. In man-to-man coverage, he may struggle to consistently cover running backs and receivers on the next level.

Overall, Soelle’s athletic profile may not be elite, but his natural instinct and feel for the linebacker position should help him be a productive linebacker on the next level.
